The US embassy in Sudan has issued a warden message authorizing embassy non-emergency personnel and family to leave the country. The warden message warns that popular protests in the aftermath of the International Criminal Court's indictment of the Sudanese president for war crimes "may encourage violence" against Europeans and Americans. Tuesday's message recommended that US citizens in Sudan should have their own contingency plans to leave the country, describing the embassy's ability to assist citizens as "limited." The embassy could close for security reasons without much advance notice, the message added.
